Many incredible women are around dreaming about the "right men". However Carlos Hyde Jersey , it's possible you cannot identify by the first glance. Don't worry. Finding these women require some ingeniousness, sometimes.

Of course at drinking bars and busy nightclubs you will bump into many of them. The only problem is those places are also crowded with men attempting to meet women. Too much siege normally makes women get defensive and crossing this barrier becomes something really challenging. Sure you can wrestle with other men for a woman's attention, but trying to meet a women somewhere else definitely would be a far more effective strategy. Increase your chances searching at places where, usually, you find more women than men.

1. Are you aware that many men absolutely hate woman's clothing stores? It's a nice hint of a place where you can find plenty of women and only few men. Take this shot, and you will find a great variety of women to pick from .You may begin a chat asking for guidance on buying a gift for your sister, or make a compliment on the nice articles she just bought.

2. Fitness Clubs are also places filled with new women to meet. The secret is to swap some of your iron pumping with aerobic training on the treadmills, or show up at a yoga class. Stick to some of these activities and you will raise your possibilities of meeting women while working out.

3. Another great opportunity to meet women is to join an adult education class. Various subjects are offered by colleges as night classes and all you need is just to pick one or two to increase your chances of meeting women. You will only need some attention to avoid male subjects - you don't expect to find many women taking car mechanic classes NaVorro Bowman Jersey , do you? Pick something that attracts women interest, like pottery or cooking classes.

4. Internet is everyday more likely to be a nice place to meet nice women and the way you search can make all the difference. Placing personals ads or subscripting to an online dating website can be one handy and very effective way. Post an ad on a dating website to meet some women who match your expectations. There are far to many websites offering this kind of service on Internet, that it's nearly impossible you won't find a woman that fits on your profile.

5. Like the women's clothing stores, Hobby and crafts stores are good spots to be considered as searching sites. Women tend to enjoy arts and crafts, so you will probably find many of them at these places, purchasing tools and items for their hobbies. The main point here is that hobbies normally don't get great men interest, so there is a huge possibility to be only few men around at this kind of shop.

6. Other places not prone to have many men around are the tanning spas and beauty salons. On the other hand, those are places always full of women. If you get a crush on women who really put an effort to keep their good look , a salon is definitely a place you should go to. Get manicured will leave your hands nice and sound like a dream for this type of women. After all, it's not really usual to meet men who assume that keeping a good appearance is not only a matter of mere vanity.

7. Bookstores are a good place to go if your goal is to find someone having interests alike to yours. Don't speculate which subject attracts women's attention more. Just stick to the reading sections holding your personal interests and give notice to women walking by the shelves. You may get extremely surprised to realize there are many women interested on football, ocean fishing or old cars.

8. Sports events are a spectacular place to meet a great new women, although it sounds a bit paradoxical. Ok, we all know the regular audience of sports events are men. Even so, there are two good reasons that may drive you to look for women at those events. Firstly, if you are a sports fan, certainly Phil Dawson 49ers Jersey , it will be great fun to meet someone who may share your passion with you. Secondly, you must be aware that women use the same strategy shown here to find men, meaning that women at a sports event may be looking for men, as well.

9. Spotting once more women's taste for arts, you should write down "theater" on your list of the greatest places to meet great new women. Men, normally, don't attend to plays on their own, however Gerald Hodges 49ers Jersey , women frequently do. Since a man watching a play alone is something unlikely to happen, your sole presence can make you more noticeable than the rest of the audience and call single women attention.

10. At last, if you are really keen to meet a beautiful new woman, maybe you should shop for food more often. Women are the bigger percentage of grocery store's costumers, so being one of the few men around can give you some advantage. Grocery stores also offer you a huge range of subjects to begin a conversation. Ask a woman for assistance to choose a pasta source or vegetables for a special salad, and it may wind up on an invitation for dinner.

Sure you will find plenty of available women at many of the bars and nightclubs however, the feasibility of meeting one is almost null. Women's behavior can get very contradictory at this sort of place since many of them, even eager to find a man Eli Harold 49ers Jersey , get a very defensive posture when besieged. Searching at places where women don't expect to be approached you make yourself more likely to meet women with their defenses down, making it easier to find someone with interests matching yours.

This past football season was one Alfred Morris Womens Jersey of the worst for 49ers’ wide receivers in quite some time. Previous general manager, Trent Baalke, decided to overlook their glaring need at the position last offseason. He didn’t draft a wide receiver until the sixth round with Aaron Burbridge. He also didn’t sign a big name at the position until right before the season started when they added their unexpected receiving leader, Jeremy Kerley. On the other hand, tight ends Vance McDonald and Garrett Celek combined for an impressive 741 yards and seven touchdowns. The two aren’t by any means at the top of the league at their position, but they are certainly one of the strengths of the team. I expect them to improve in an enhanced Kyle Shanahan offense.

The 49ers could be without two of their top three wide receivers from the 2016 season. They released Torrey Smith and have not yet re-signedAustin Howard Womens Jersey Quinton Patton or Rod Streater opening up addition salary cap space for incoming players. However, they will keep the highly under-appreciated receiver Jeremy Kerley who led the 49ers in receiving yards and receptions. Pierre Garcon and Marquise Goodwin, who marked two of Kyle Shanahan’s first big acquisitions, will join Kerley and the other wide receivers. Pierre Garcon looks to help improve the 49ers’ league worst passing offense that averaged just 181.9 yards per game. Garcon has accumulated 3,916 yards over the past four seasons and already has two seasons of experience with coach Kyle Shanahan. Goodwin is coming off of his best season with the Buffalo Bills where he had 431 yards and three touchdowns. He is still a young player with room to grow and should help fill the deep threat hole left by Torrey Smith. The rest of the wide receiver depth chart is generally young and unproven.
The tight end situation should look very similar to last season but with a bit more experience. Breakout performer Vance McDonald earned a nice bump in salary as he led the 49ers in receiving touchdowns with four, all of which seemed so important on a team that really struggled to score through the air. He is now the seventh highest paid player on the roster. Garrett Celek will also remain on the team who had the third most receptions and fourth most yards among receivers. Blake Bell will look to grow in his second year and backup Logan Paulsen was added in free agency as insurance.
The receiving core seems improved from last year, which isn’t saying much. However, I expect the 49ers to add a playmaking receiver as early as the second round in the upcoming draft. There is no receiver truly worth selecting at second overall so unless they wanted to trade down, which general manger John Lynch has said he is open to, the 49ers will likely wait until the early second round to add another weapon for Brian Hoyer. Top wide receivers John Ross (Washington) or Mike Williams (Clemson) could very possibly fall to the early second round where San Francisco could snag them for a great pickup. If not Curtis Samuel (Ohio State) or Chris Godwin (Penn State) could be sneaky picks if chosen instead. The 49ers do not have a need for a tight end in the draft since signing Paulsen so there is little reason to believe that they might add one.

LINCOLN — New Nebraska safeties coach BobBrandon Marshall Authentic Jersey Elliott just talked to his wife about it the other day — they’ve moved 18 times to 12 locations in his football coaching career. That’s a lot of coaching jobs and defensive backs Elliott has overseen.
So it ought to mean something that Husker junior safety Aaron Williams sticks out — in a good way — to Elliott. Williams is apparently that sharp needle in a haystack of helmets and shoulder pads.
“Aaron Williams is as smart a player as I’ve ever been around,” Elliott told reporters Tuesday. “He’s grasping things that I never dreamed that a safety could grasp this quickly.”
That’s not necessarily surprising — Williams finished with 62 tackles and three interceptions last season and started as a true freshman in NU’s season opener — but, for a Husker team learning its third defense in four years, it’s important that at least one player — preferably a safety — knows the ins and outs of the Coby Fleener Womens Jersey scheme quickly. If former Nebraska defensive coordinator Mark Banker and former Husker safety Nate Gerry never quite seemed to be on the same page, Williams, Elliott and new defensive coordinator Bob Diaco appear to be.
Elliott said Williams is good at “conceptualizing” the defense rather than memorizing assignments. The former is better because it helps with adjustments and teaching other players where they need to be.
And Williams, who played nickel and safety last season for NU, can do those things, Elliott said.
“He’s our quarterback on defense,” Elliott said.
Williams is essentially the replacement for Gerry, a third-team All-American who exhausted his eligibility and is waiting to see if he gets picked in the 2017 NFL draft. Beside Williams, it appears to be a two-man race between junior Antonio Reed and senior Kieron Williams. The latter started for much of last season — he led NU with five interceptions — before Reed got the starting nod in the Music City Bowl.
The 6-foot-2, 220-pound Reed is big enough to play linebacker but quick enough to be at safety; that’s part of the reason he’s with the first team right now. The other is he’s healthy; Reed missed last spring camp recovering from shoulder surgery, then spent part of last season getting into optimum playing shape. In the bowl game, Reed started but left the game with a undisclosed medical issue in the first half.
Elliott said he’s been working with Reed on being consistent. There hasn’t been enough hitting in practice, Elliott said, to see how physical Reed is, though he has a reputation as a good hitter.
“If his body doesn’t lie — if he’s not out of control — then he should be a physical player,” Elliott said. “And I like that about him. He’s got good range, good speed.”
Kieron Williams has “great movement skills,” Elliott said. “He has been really outstanding.”
Williams was a part of several big moments last season, including a last-second swat of the ball in the win over Oregon, a pick-six against Wyoming and a dramatic late-game interception — that Aaron Williams helped set up — against Minnesota.
Elliott isn’t opposed to playing more than two guys at safety if they earn the chance. Neither is Diaco, a longtime coaching colleague and friend of Elliott’s.
“Bob’s been big on that over the years,” Elliott said. “If there’s no drop-off, then we’re going to play guys. We’re going to play as many as we can if there’s no drop-off. It’s their job to make sure there’s no drop-off. Even if there’s a small drop-off, maybe we’d play one of them more than the other, but I’m not opposed to playing multiple guys.”
Other safeties include JoJo Domann, Tony Butler and Marquel Dismuke. Dismuke moved from cornerback to safety in the offseason. Domann was originally recruited as a linebacker before he moved to safety.
“He’s a very good athlete: He’s got loose hips, he’s athletic, he’s a smart player, a natural player,” Elliott said.

The Denver Broncos run defense was arguably the most disappointing aspect of the entire team this last season. While many fans will point toBarry Church Authentic Jersey the struggles of the Broncos offense, and specifically, the short comings along the offensive line, it was in fact Denver’s rush defense that took the greatest step back from the Super Bowl Champion season. It led to the disappointing 2016 campaign, which caused Denver to miss the playoffs the first time in John Elway’s tenure as the Broncos GM.
This past year, the Denver run defense went from a dominant 3.3 yards per attempt and 83.6 yards per game in 2015 — both ranked 3rd best in the league — to 4.3 yards per attempt (ranked 18th), and a sorry 130.3 yards per game (ranked 28th).

While it is not fully fair to expect an historic defense to keep up their level of dominance on the ground after losing both Malik Jackson and Danny Trevathan to free agency and Vance Walker to injury before the season even started, the step back the Denver defense took this past year needs to be shored up if they wish to return to the playoffsBenson Mayowa Jersey in 2017. One player who many hoped will fill in for Jackson last season — and going forward — is defensive lineman Adam Gotsis.
Adam Gotsis was selected by Elway and the Broncos with the last pick in the second round, thanks largely in part to Bill Kollar’s pounding the table for the kid. Despite a great frame and a decent get off, many considered the selection of Gotsis to be a reach, as he was raw.
He had limited football experience coming over recently from Australia, as well as coming off of an ACL injury. Despite these two factors, Gotsis was put into action and his results were as one would expect for a raw rookie defensive lineman coming off a pretty significant injury.
Let's examine Denver's Week 15 loss to the New England Patriots, where Gotsis saw a significant share of snaps.
Play 1
made at
On this play, Gotsis is lined up on the outside shoulder of the right tackle Marcus Cannon, with two tight ends inline. Closer to the time of the snap, ILB Todd Davis comes down from the second level to line up directly over the right tackle, shading slightly towards the B gap and showing a blitz.
At the snap, Davis crashes into the right tackle, while also drawing the attention of Patriots right guard Shaq Mason. Gotsis' job is to stunt and rush the A gap between the RG and center. Doing so, he must allow Davis to first initiate contact with the RT, stick close to Davis’ rear, all while moving laterally and ‘boomeranging’ his way into the quarterback’s face.
Gotsis does a great job on this play, showing a decent burst out of his stance, maintaining his balance as he moves laterally and bursts into the backfield. Gotsis is just a tick too fast for the Patriots RG Mason, and able to get past him and apply pressure to the quarterback's face.
Gotsis does a good job staying low and keeping his balance as he moves laterally, wasting none of his movement as he moves up out of his stance to provide burst into the backfield. Tom Brady’s pass to running back James White falls harmlessly incomplete, thanks mainly to the interior pressure provided by Gotsis and his interior pressure.
Play 2
made at
This is something that happened far too often with Adam Gotsis last year, as well as many other Broncos defensive linemen. On this play, Gotsis is lined up over the B gap between the Patriots LT and LG, Nate Solder and fellow rookie Joe Thuney.
Gotsis fires off decently on this play again, showing an okay burst out of his stance for a nearly 300-pound defensive lineman. While Gotsis is attempting to shoot the B gap and make it in the backfield to find the ball and cause disruption, the Patriots lLG Thuney uncoils and uses Gotsis’ momentum to shove him into the turf.
Thuney then shows his intelligence and aggression by getting on top of Gotsis and pushing him back into the ground, ensuring Gotsis would have no chance to get back up and pursue the ball down the field. By immediately getting wrestled to the turf, Gotsis is quickly washed out of the play. Gotsis will need to continue to add power and strength to his core if the Broncos are going to improve on run defense next season.
Play 3
made at
On this 1st-&-20, the Patriots are looking to pick up some more yardage to give themselves a more manageable second down. Denver stays in their base formation here with three defensive linemen and two outside linebackers, due to the potential run threat with LeGarrette Blount in the backfield, despite Brady being lined up in shotgun.
Gotsis is lined up over the B gap between the Patriots RT and RG. At the snap, Gotsis shows again marginal get off. Gotsis attempts to use his hands to try to disengage from the RG’s block attempt, while making himself ‘skinny’ through the B gap.
Unfortunately Gotsis comes up a little too high out of his stance and doesn’t use his hands well enough to keep the RG from engaging with Gotsis’ chest plate and controlling him at the point of attack. Having the advantage of leverage, the RG is then able to neutralize Gotsis and knock him backwards after initial contact.
With time in the pocket, Brady is able to find Julian Edelman down the right sideline for 15 yards, setting up a very manageable 2nd-&-5. Gotsis will need to work on staying low, as well as his hand technique and ability to swipe blockers hands off him, if he is going to improve as a pass rusher in one on one situations next season.
Play 4
made at
This is 1st-&-10 in the third quarter with the Broncos trailing the Patriots 13-3. Denver is still very much in this game, but they are going to need to get tough in the trenches and stop the run if they are going to give their offense a chance to get back on the field and tie the game.
Unfortunately for the Broncos, that does not happen and this play exemplifies why they weren’t able to slow the Patriots down. On this play Adam Gotsis is lined up over the B gap between the Patriots’ RT and RG. The Patriots are lined up with one tight end and one running back.
Before the snap, Tom Brady motions wide receiver Chris Hogan over next to the tight end. At snap, the Patriots LG pulls showing a power run play to the right side of the line. Gotsis is double-teamed and almost immediately loses ground against the RG and RT, opening up a lot of room for the lead blocking lLG and the trailing running back.
In multiple occasions on this game, Gotsis was faced with and struggled to anchor against double teams, being driven back multiple yards or planted into the turf. If Denver’s run defense expects to improve next year and Gotsis wants to be a part of that, he will need to get stronger and be better at holding his ground and anchoring against doubles.
If Gotsis had been able to better hold his ground on this play, it could have caused a lot of disruption on the play and potentially stopped the Patriots running back right at the line of scrimmage. Another way to beat double teams is to be quicker and shoot the gap between the doubling offensive linemen, but Gotsis has not consistently shown the necessary burst to do that yet in the NFL.
Play 5
made at
This is my favorite Gotsis play in the entire game, despite not getting credit for a tackle. On a 2nd-&-7 situation, with the Patriots driving and the Broncos still down 13-3, Adam Gotsis shows the tools that should give the Broncos and fans hope that he can develop and take the next step in his career.
On this play, Gotsis is once again lined up over the B gap between the RG and RT. Gotsis fires off the snap with good balance and leverage and gets his hands into the RG’s chest plate to drive him slightly back.
With Mason in Gotsis’ clutches, Gotsis keeps his eyes in the backfield and looks for the ball-carrier, diagnosing the direction the running back is supposed to run. Gotsis quickly interprets that the ball-carrier is running behind his fullback up the middle on a draw, disengages from the RT, and shows excellent lateral agility and length to get his hands on the running back, helping the Denver front seven hold the running back for just one yard.
Gotsis shows it all on this play, with a strong get off, good leverage and balance, proper hand technique, quick possessing speed, and quality agility to help slow down the Patriots rushing attack on this play.
This is just a snapshot of a single game’s analysis of what Gotsis offers the Denver defense going forward. From watching the tape, it is easy to see what Bill Kollar loved so much about the kid when watching his college tape at Georgia Tech.
Adam Gotsis has a fantastic frame with strong motor and above average athleticism for a man his size. However, also from watching the tape, it is easy to see that Gotsis needs to continue to add strength to his core and lower half in order to better anchor against double teams and not get knocked off the line of scrimmage.
Gotsis also needs to continue to work on maintaining balance and leverage off the snap while using proper hand technique to disengage from blocker. He does not display incredible explosion in his play.
But if he listens to Kollar’s advice, who recently told Gotsis he needs to hit the weight room hard to get bigger and stronger in order to have a better impact on the line next season, then one should expect Gotsis to develop into a quality starting NFL defensive lineman and help improve the Broncos woeful defensive line play from last season.

MOBILE, Ala. – Few offensive linemenBennie Fowler Womens Jersey left a mark on Alabama's brilliant pass-rushing trio of Ryan Anderson, Tim Williams and Jonathan Allen, three dominant players who will likely be all off the board in the first two rounds of the draft.
But one player on the Crimson Tide's schedule left an impression.
Forrest Lamp, the Western Kentucky left tackle who has also been mentioned as a potential first-round pick, gave Alabama's best pass rushers all they could handle.
"He didn't make many mistakes, technically sound, good competitor," Anderson said. "He was probably the best tackle I played all year."
Lamp's performance against Alabama was only the latest in a long line of eye-opening showings against top-tier schools. Lamp acquitted himself well against LSU's Arden Key in 2015, took on Illinois's Jihad Ward the year before and played games against Tennessee and Kentucky in his first two seasons on campus.
The body of work Lamp put together has made him one of the most coveted offensive linemen in the draft.
"Any time you get praise from some of the best players in the country – and those guys definitely are, Tim Williams, Jonathan Allen and Ryan Anderson –any time some of the best players in the country give you a shout-out, it's going to help," Lamp said.
The question now is what position Lamp will play in the NFL.
Lamp, who stands 6-foot-4 and weighed in at 305 pounds, has shorter arms (31 1/8 inches) than some teams like at tackle, where a blocker has to13 Ty Hilton Womens Jersey be able to keep NFL edge rushers from getting into his body.
His arms, plus his versatility, has prompted many analysts to project a move to guard, where Lamp might be the top player available at the position, along with Indiana's Dan Feeney, even though he hasn't played guard since he was a freshman at Western Kentucky.
"Every team's different," Lamp said. "Beauty's in the eye of the beholder. For some teams it's tackle, for some it's guard; some see me as a center."
The New Orleans Saints wanted to take a guard in the draft last year, but a couple of their targets came off the board at the end of the first round, and depending on free agency, the position could be on their radar again.
Veteran Jahri Evans played well in his 11th season at the position, but he's a free agent at the age of 33, and at some point in the future, the plan has been left guard Andrus Peat is expected to move to right tackle to take over for Zach Strief whenever his career's done, although Peat seems more comfortable on the left side.
Peat's an example of a recent trend of college tackles who have started at guard in the NFL. Both Washington's Brandon Scherff and Dallas's Zack Martin were college left tackles who have become standout guards in the NFL, and although there's a transition to be expected, Lamp might be next.
For Lamp, the biggest difference between the two positions is the speed of the game.
"How fast everything happens," Lamp said. "At tackle, I've got three or four steps before I even make contact, where at guard it's as soon as I set."
Except for three games as a freshman at Western Kentucky, Lamp has always been a tackle, but he's confident he can make the switch if a team needs him to play inside at the next level.

"It'll be a little less comfortable, just because I'm not used to it," Lamp said. "But I feel like I'm versatile enough that if I practiced there for a week or two, went through live practices and feel my way through everything, I can be just fine."
More than fine, if the Alabama defensive line has anything to say about it.
Pat McAfee Hear

# 21.03.2017 - 04:44:09

INDIANAPOLIS – Just minutes after JimAnthony Brown Authentic Jersey Irsay introduced Chris Ballard as his new general manager in late January, a surprising off-season need was about to surface.
Pat McAfee, one of the NFL’s elite punters, was going to inform Irsay that he was retiring at the age of 29.
Add one more item to the immediate off-season plan for Ballard.
The retirement of McAfee was something Ballard could not have foreseen.
Ballard had never met McAfee before his hiring in Indianapolis, but still wanted to reach out to the greatest punter in franchise history.
“Pat was a great player for the Colts,” Ballard said on Wednesday at the NFL Combine.
“People keep asking the question, ‘Hey, are you disappointed?’ Yeah, I was disappointed. But also on the other side of that I was happy for Pat because Pat found his life’s work. When a player’s career ends, when the cheering stops, when the comradery of the locker room ends, they have got to have something that they Clive Walford Womens Jersey are passionate about in life. I am happy for Pat McAfee that he is able to find something that he is really passionate about.”
The other major news coming out of Ballard’s first month on the job was the release of 11-year veteran D’Qwell Jackson.
Even though Ballard had no prior connection to Jackson, a face-to-face meeting was wanted.
“Let me say this about D’Qwell first, outstanding Indianapolis Colt,” Ballard said on Monday. “He has been a heck of a pro.
“We made that decision quickly because he was coming into the office and I wanted to be able to look him eye-to-eye. I didn’t want to call him on the phone. I didn’t want to meet him and then call him two months later. The right thing was to look D’Qwell Jackson in the eye and pay him the respect that he deserved and give him a chance to get another opportunity to play.”
Upgrading the inside linebacker position was always thought to be a positional area to address coming into 2017.
Punter, while probably not at the same level of importance, is now also on the off-season need list.
“(McAfee) is a difficult guy to replace, but we are working on it,” Ballard said at the Combine.
“We will work through it and we will find an adequate replacement moving forward. We have our special teams and our scouts and we are all working hard on finding that replacement."

The roster turnover is about toBrandon Mcmanus Authentic Jersey begin. Free agency opens in less than one month and the 2017 NFL Draft isn’t far behind it. Over the next two months, the Cowboys will lose and replace a sizable portion of their roster.
For every new face, however, there are dozens of familiar ones who will return to begin a new campaign. From established veterans to second-year players, the vast majority of the Cowboys’ 2017 team is already on the roster. In the coming weeks, the staff of will preview those players, analyzing where they’ve been and where they’re going.
Today we’ll continue the series with linebacker Anthony Hitchens.
What’s Been Good: For the last three years, Hitchens Hauoli Kikaha Womens Jersey has been one of the more consistent linebackers on the team, nearly reaching a total of 300 tackles in his career. This past year, he quietly put together another solid campaign, recording a career-high 104 tackles. Also, Hitchens played in all 16 games for the third straight season.
What’s Been Bad: Despite racking up plenty of tackles and not missing a game, Hitchens hasn’t really taken a huge step forward like we might have anticipated by this point in his career. He has moved positions somewhat from the outside to the middle, but there haven’t been a ton of catalytic, game-changing plays. That’s really the only knock on him, considering he has gotten better each year.
2016 Highlight: Against the Vikings in early December, Hitchens had arguably his best game of his career – at least since his rookie season. But in Minnesota, he recorded 13 tackles, including one for loss, a sack and deflected a pass in the Cowboys’ dramatic Thursday night win on the road.
What’s Next: What’s next will be a little tricky for Hitchens, who has nearly tripled his salary for this upcoming season because of the NFL’s pay system that rewards mid-round draft picks in the last year of their original deals. Instead of making $690,000, he is expected to earn close to $1.9 million in base salary. His role on the team, though, is uncertain because of the status of Jaylon Smith, who continues to rehab his injury. If healthy, Smith figures to start at middle linebacker, but the Cowboys are still unsure what is timetable will be, or if he can ever fully recover from the injury that dropped him into the second round of last year’s draft. Hitchens will certainly have a role on this defense, but it’s still up in the air if he will move back to the strong-side linebacker position or have just a prominent role in the nickel defense and special teams.

Solomon Thomas is a hot name getting pegged to the 49ers and their second-overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft.
The Stanford defensive<a href="">Arik Armstead Jersey</a> lineman might be the second best prospect available with Myles Garrett expected to go first to Cleveland. But if San Francisco taps Thomas, it wouldn’t be a seamless fit.
That’s because the 49ers used first-round selections in the previous two drafts on defensive linemen Arik Armstead and DeForest Buckner, who were picked to play in the team’s 3-4 front. San Francisco in 2017 is transitioning to a Seahawks-like 4-3 that uses 3-4 personnel, which Armstead and Buckner should excel in.
Thomas played in a 3-4 at Stanford, tasked with disrupting opposing offenses from the interior against guards, much like Armstead and Buckner during their college careers at Oregon. Thomas is redundant, which might not necessarily be a bad thing. Depth is good.
The question becomes, if the 49ers think Thomas is the best pick at No. 2, how does he fit with those other two? And if the fit is questionable, is he skilled enough to transcend it and allow San Francisco to worry about the fit later?
Thomas is a tweener who might not have the length and explosion to consistently pressure the quarterback along the edge. He’s 6-foot-3 and 273 pounds with 33-inch arms, which isn’t prototypical of a pass rusher going against offensive tackle – particularly a pass rusher drafted second overall. San Francisco’s right tackle Trent Brown, for example, has 36-inch arms and would be able to get his hands on Thomas before Thomas could reach Brown.
But Thomas is also some 20 pounds lighter<a href="">Charles Clay Womens Jersey</a> than most interior defensive tackles in a 4-3, which would indicate he’d have to gain to weight to play against the run in base – making it less likely he could rush from the edge. J.J. Watt, for instance, can play all four spots along a defensive line. But he entered the league at 290 pounds in 2011.
Thomas realistically plays the same position as Armstead, which would be as a three- or five-technique along the interior, allowing longer, more natural pass rushers like Aaron Lynch and Ahmad Brooks to play the ‘Leo’ and ‘Sam’ positions on the edges. Buckner figures to be an every-down player if the team added Thomas or not.
The 4-3 over defensive front in base would look similar to the 3-4 front the team has run the better part of the last decade. For now, it would likely look like this:
Leo: Aaron Lynch (Tank Carradine)
DT: Arik Armstead (Solomon Thomas?)
DT: Earl Mitchell (Quinton Dial)
DE: DeForest Buckner
Sam: Ahmad Brooks (Eli Harold)
DE: Lynch (Carradine)
DT: Armstead (Thomas?)
DT: Buckner (Dial)
DE: Brooks (Harold)
Thomas projects to be a three-down player, which <a href=""></a> means the 49ers would have to figure out if Armstead is worth having in a part-time, pass-rushing role, or if he has more value on the trade market to a team that runs his natural 3-4.
New general manager John Lynch ultimately has to build the best roster for the long haul. Drafting for need, and not taking the best player available, can often lead to mistakes. A need is defined as a snapshot in time and could change with an injury during a practice or a free agent addition. Also, a need could always be addressed later in the draft.
Having too many disruptive players along the defensive line is never a bad thing. But the 49ers need help up and down the roster. They have holes at quarterback, free safety, receiver, linebacker, and edge pass rusher, which would be more prudent after the team took Armstead and Buckner the last two years.
San Francisco’s roster isn’t ripe for a<a href=""></a> luxury pick, like Thomas, to add depth to a position that already has talent. Unless, perhaps, if Armstead is traded.
Like the Rams in recent seasons, there’s long-term risk in investing valuable first-round selections in the same position group. The 49ers shouldn’t neglect other areas on the roster – unless they can ensure Thomas would be an every-down player.
Former Bills WR

As the Buffalo Bills’ most distinguished <a href="">18 Peyton Manning Authentic Jersey</a> receiver and one of the best pass catchers in NFL history, Andre Reed said his former team has something special in Fort Myers native Sammy Watkins.
“There’s no doubt about it – if Sammy is 100 percent, he’s one of the top five receivers in the league,” Reed said.
The problem, Reed said before speaking at the Boys & Girls Club of Collier County’s Youth of the Year Celebration on Tuesday in Naples, is that Watkins hasn’t been 100 percent very often. Watkins, a 2011 graduate of South Fort Myers High School, has missed 11 games the past two seasons with various injuries.
If Watkins can finally play healthy – even as a rookie in 2014, his only full pro season, Watkins battled through rib injuries – Reed thinks the current Bills receiver can have success similar to what the former had.
“He has all the physical attributes,” Reed said. “Sammy is a great athlete, a great player. It’s just unfortunate he’s really only had one full season. Hopefully things turn around for him.”
NFL: Vikings' Alexander leads locals into training camp
Reed, who played 15 seasons in Buffalo, was<a href="">Dj Fluker Authentic Jersey</a> in Naples to support a cause bigger than Bills football. Wearing his gold Pro Football Hall of Fame jacket from the Class of 2014, Reed wanted to support an organization that he credits for making him successful in life.
Growing up in Allentown, Pennsylvania, Reed spent nearly every day at the Boys & Girls Club. Since retiring from the NFL in 2000, Reed has spoken at many Boys & Girls Clubs around the country to raise funds and support for the cause.
The Collier County chapter’s fifth annual Youth of the Year Celebration was at Artis–Naples. On Monday, Reed spoke to a group of local Boys & Girls Club kids at the Naples facility.
Reed also is a member of the Boys & Girls Club of America Alumni Hall of Fame. The Andre Reed Foundation was established in 2010 to support underprivileged children, and one of the beneficiaries is the Boys & Girls Club.
Following its 2013 charity golf tournament, Reed’s foundation donated $25,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of Allentown.
“Everybody here, they have their own story,” Reed said before Tuesday’s event. “My story may be different, but we all have the same foundation. You need the same values, the same people in your corner patting you on the back or smacking<a href=""></a> you on the back when you’re not doing good. The Boys & Girls Club reinforces that.”
NFL: Carolina's Boston, Atlanta's De'Vondre Campbell overcoming the Super Bowl blues
As Reed wishes the best for Watkins, he also hopes the Bills can return to the glory days of his time in Buffalo.
Drafted in 1985, Reed was the leading receiver as the Bills went to four straight Super Bowls from 1991-95. Reed is 53 years old, yet Buffalo hasn’t made the playoffs since his final year there. His last game was the Musical City Miracle, when the Titans beat the Bills following a lateral pass on a kickoff with three seconds left.
Buffalo famously lost all four Super Bowls in the 1990s. Following the 1990 season, the Bills lost Super Bowl XXV, 20-19 to the New York Giants, when Scott Norwood’s 47-yard field goal went wide right as time expired.
In this year’s Super Bowl, the Atlanta Falcons suffered a comparably crushing defeat. The Falcons led by 25 points in the third quarter before the New England Patriots charged back to win in overtime.
“You never get over it,” Reed said of losing in the Super Bowl. “It’s been years and years and years after our four Super Bowls, and I still want<a href=""></a> to win one. Your whole focus is to get to the Super Bowl and win a championship. That’s what you play the game for.”

The Broncos issued a slew of tenders to Michael Hoomanawanui Womens Jersey their restricted and exclusive rights free agents on Tuesday.
The team confirmed that they tendered kicker Brandon McManus in a release announcing moves involving 10 players overall. McManus received a second-round tender as a restricted free agent and, per multiple reports, so did linebacker Todd Davis.
Davis started 15 games for Denver last season and ended the year with 97 tackles, a half-sack and a forced fumble. He stands to make $2.746 million under the tender and any team that wants to sign him would have to give the Broncos a second-round pick for the right to do so.
Starting center Matt Paradis headlines the list of eight ERFAs tendered by the Broncos on Tuesday. Paradis is recovering from surgeries to both hips, but is expected to be back to health for next season. Linebacker Zaire Anderson, linebacker Shaq Barrett, center James Ferentz, running back Kapri Bibbs, long snapper Casey Kreiter, wide receiver Bennie Fowler and wide receiver Jordan Taylor were the others.

The New Orleans Saints are apparently not content Deion Sanders Womens Jersey with keeping the status quo at the linebacker position.
The Saints are close to signing free-agent linebacker Manti Te'o, a source familiar with the discussions confirmed Monday afternoon.
ESPN's Dan Graziano first reported the news, while adding a deal could be accomplished Tuesday.
The Saints hosted Te'o on a visit early in free agency, but the former Los Angeles Chargers linebacker left without signing a deal.
Te'o, 26, entered the league in 2013 out of Notre Dame as a second-round pick (38th overall) of the Chargers.
The 6-1, 241-pound Te'o, a native of Hawaii, has appeared in 38 career games (34 starts) over four seasons and totaled 233 tackles (160 solo), 1 1/2 sacks, two interceptions, nine passes defensed and a forced fumble in that span.
The Saints' current linebacker corps consists of A.J. Klein Craig Robertson, Stephone Anthony, Dannell Ellerbe, Nate Stupar, Hau'oli Kikaha, Travis Feeney, Royce LaFrance and Adam Bighill.
Klein, who spent four seasons with the Carolina Panthers, joined the Saints on a three-year deal on the first day of free agency.

Its no secret that many fans were upset when the cream of the crop wide receivers came and went to other teams around the league. Understandably so. The Tennessee Titans do have a need, plenty of cap space, and the looksJimmie Ward Authentic Jersey of being ready to take that next step and be a real contender.
Don’t panic yet though. There are still options out there through free agency, the draft, and don’t forget about trade options that could become available. Right now, we have to trust that Jon Robinson knows best — he has earned that. It’s all about balancing budget and production. What I mean by that is: would you rather have a receiver make $12-$14 million a year and catch 90 balls for 1500 yards, or a receiver who makes $3-$5 million a year who catches 60 balls for 900 some odd yards? Let’s take a look at some of the options left available for the Titans at this point.
Mike Williams is considered by most scouts to be the best receiver in this year’s draft class. He has size, speed, he runs solid routes, and does a nice job adjusting to the football. He ate up Alabama and Ohio State’s defenses in the college football playoffs. With pick number five overall in this year’s draft, the Titans will have a shot to get him and it’s also possible he falls to them at 18th overall as well.
Although he isn’t as big as Mike Williams, some scouts have Corey Davis ranked ahead of him. He has a nice size, speed combo going for him. Davis is an advanced route runner and he’s dangerous after the catch as well. He would probably be better suited to pick up at 18th overall instead of fifth.
John Ross is a true burner. He broke Chris Johnson’s 40 yard dash record at the NFL combine, so he can certainly take the lid off a defense. I’ve seen comparisons to Tyreek Hill of the Kansas City Chiefs and Brandin Cooks of the New EnglandLeSean McCoy Authentic Jersey Patriots. He can also make some big plays on special teams, which again the Titans love. His only downfall is his size. At 5’11” and 190lbs, he’s better suited to play in the slot than as a number one receiver. Which makes me question his health. Slot receivers typically work the middle of the field where those big linebackers play. With his small frame, I question if he could stay healthy for a full sixteen game season.
Noah Brown is what a person would describe as an athletic freak and he could fall to the Titans in round 3. He can make those spectacular catches and he knows how to use his big bodied frame as well. I would like to see more explosion from him off the line of scrimmage though.
Chad Hansen could be another target the Titans go after in round 3. He has good size and with some time he could develop into a true number one in the league. I could see him as a rotational player or a decent number two option. He runs good routes, but I would like to see him run some different routes.
Chris Godwin has really raised his stock over the last few months. At 6’1&#8243;, he has some size to him, but he also has good speed. Its likely he goes in round 2, but with so much depth at so many other positions it’s possible he slips into round 3.
Like Chris Godwin, Malachi Dupre is a second round talent who could slip into round three. As a Titans fan watching scouting videos on Dupre I couldn’t help but notice so many similarities to Justin Hunter. A more well rounded, explosive Justin Hunter. He has that tall slim build to him, but he is explosive off the line of scrimmage, gets involved in the run blocking game, and he can really stretch the defense.
So, my fellow Titan fans, this is no time to panic. There are still some options out there to bring in and we still have Delanie Walker, Rishard Matthews, and Tajae Sharpe (whom I expect to improve headeing into year two of his career) catching passes for us. We also have a backfield of DeMarco Murray, Derrick Henry, and Marcus Mariota in a run first football scheme.

Damion Square considers the Los Angeles Chargers' shift from a 3-4 defensive scheme to a 4-3 look as an extra chance to show his versatility.
Former Jacksonville Jaguars head coach and 84 Jack Doyle Youth Jersey Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley has taken over the Chargers' defense under new Los Angeles head coach Anthony Lynn.
The Chargers return starting defensive end Joey Bosa, the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Year for 2016; defensive tackle Corey Liuget and nose tackle Brandon Mebane, as well as Square, who started the final seven games of the 2016 campaign after Mebane suffered a season-ending torn biceps.
"Our front four is very strong," Square told the Chargers' official web site. "It's tremendous with Mebane, Joey and Corey. The talent we have is second to none. So for me, I'm a guy who can play anywhere across the front. I can play the three-technique. I can play the nose. Put me at the five if needed or the six if needed. I have versatility where I can play along the front and at a high level. That is the role that I fill, and I will fill it to the best of my ability. ...
"Football is football. There are a lot of different ways to play. But at the end of the day, it is about effort, executing, finding the ball and getting the guy on the ground."
After his first regular playing time in the NFL, Square chose to return to the Chargers after becoming a free agent on March 9. Los Angeles announced on March 10 that Square would be staying with the team.
"There were certain things I wanted in free agency, and Josh Lambo Womens Jersey the Chargers gave it to me," Square said. "I wanted to stay with the group of guys I grew with. We have great chemistry."

Since NFL free agency opened on March 9, nearly 200 players have gotten new contracts, including 16 from Alabama high schools and colleges, in the so-called "first wave" of signings. Here's a look at the deals signed by the state's free agents.
Square re-signed with the Chargers for a two-year, $4,000,000 contract that included a $1,225,000 signing bonus and a $775,000 base salary for the 2017 season.
Square was a starter for Alabama's BCS national-championship teams of 2011 and 2012, and he made the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted rookie.
After Square played in 10 games in 2013, the Eagles released him at the end of training camp in 2014. The Kansas City Chiefs picked up the defensive lineman, but Square never got in a game with Kansas City before being released on Oct. 31, 2014. San Diego picked him up, but he finished that season without appearing in a game.
Square went from Dec. 29, 2013, when he played the last of his 147 defensive snaps for the Eagles, until Nov. 9, 2015, without appearing in an NFL regular-season game. He ended up playing 155 snaps in six games for the Chargers in 2015.
In 2016, Square played 362 defensive snaps in 11 games for San Diego. He recorded the first sacks of his career, sharing a sack of Houston Texans quarterback Brock Osweiler on Nov. 27, then sacking Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III two times on Dec. 24.

There's been plenty of talk about theDerek Wolfe Authentic Jersey two big-name ACC quarterbacks expected to get selected in April's NFL Draft. North Carolina's Mitch Trubisky and Clemson's Deshaun Watson will probably both get their names called in the first round. That's no surprise.
Behind those two is a second tier of names like Notre Dame's Deshone Kizer and Miami's Brad Kaaya.
Each of those passers has their own set of positives and negatives, but there's an underrated ACC signal caller that's been gaining hype as of late.
It's Pittsburgh quarterback Nathan Peterman.
Peterman closed out his campaign at Pitt with 5,236 passing yards 47 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. Almost all of those stats came in 2015 and 2016, Peterman's two years as the Panthers' starter.
Bleacher Report NFL Draft Lead Writer Matt Josh Hill Authentic Jersey Miller casted some interesting insight into how the NFL is viewing Peterman.
"Nathan Peterman, or as one scout told me, this week, 'this draft's best chance at Dak Prescott,'" Miller said. "What the scout meant by 'Dak-like,' though, isn't that he'll lead a team to a playoff run as a rookie. More likely he means a franchise can grab a starter outside the first two rounds. And Peterman can be that if he slips to the third round."
This is really interesting stuff.
I followed Peterman fairly closely while covering the ACC this season and was never wowed by watching him. He felt more of a consistent game manager type, who made very little mistakes and connected on the big play every once in a while. He checks in at 6-foot-2, but I always thought he was undersized, especially interviewing him at the ACC media event leading up to last year's season when he wasn't wearing pads and a helmet.
Maybe that's precisely what the scout meant, though? Peterman could come in, have decent production without blowing anyone away and have a foundation to build on? That's what Prescott did to an extent after all -- he just had a ton of help around him.
Take a look at this analysis of Peterman by the folks at NFL Draft Breakdown. When they slowed it down and focused on Peterman's release and mobility, they had me convinced there was a bigger upside than I was seeing when the season was playing out. There was even an Aaaron Rodgers comparison which feels way too premature.
Is Peterman going to be a sleeper and become the next Prescott? You decide.

After a few years in the NFL bouncing Deforest Buckner Womens Jersey from team to team, Andrew Tiller finally found a home in San Francisco for the last two years with the 49ers. Tiller started 14 games along the offensive line as a guard, and now at 28-years-old, he brings some versatility and experience to a new team looking to bolster its offensive front.
The Kansas City Chiefs hosted Tiller for a free agent visit on Monday, the third such visit after previously hosting linebacker Gerald Hodges and defensive tackle Bennie Logan. Hodges is still a free agent, but John Dorsey struck a one-year deal with Logan to help replace the departed Dontari Poe on the defensive line. With Tiller, it’s a bit harder to tell what K.C.’s general manager is thinking.
To get a better sense of what Tiller would bring to the table, we asked Peter Panacy, site expert from Niners Noise, a few questions and he graciously agreed to answer them.
Andrew Tiller finally seemed to find a homeMarcus Easley Youth Jersey in San Francisco after bouncing around the league. What allowed him to find a home with the Niners?
Andrew Tiller managed to be in the right situation at the right time. The 49ers were dealing with two notable offensive line departures in 2015 — Mike Iupati and Anthony Davis. Towards the end of the season, when it became apparent right guard Jordan Devey wasn’t going to work out, fans got to see a little of what he was capable of doing. He looked like a solid backup and even a potential starting guard in a power scheme.
Tiller started several games in the last two seasons for the Niners. Was he a solid starter or was it detrimental to the line?
Late in 2016, I was one of a number of people wondering why Tiller wasn’t getting the start over veteran left guard Zane Beadles. Part of it probably was the zone-scheme fit, which former head coach Chip Kelly implemented a year ago. Pro Football Focus certainly graded Tiller higher than Beadles. Of course some of this could be the stigma of being an undrafted free agent, but it’s hard to see that being a reality for a struggling team.
Nevertheless, I think most Niner fans were impressed by Tiller’s play, even if it was limited.
Why were the Niners ready to move on?
It’s more of a fit thing at this point than anything else. Tiller is probably best suited for a power scheme, not the zone-blocking approach. And head coach Kyle Shanahan will be implementing an outside-zone approach this offseason. I’m not sure Tiller fits into that. And, by looking at the guys’ strengths ahead of Tiller on the depth chart, perhaps both Shanahan and general manager John Lynch just didn’t see the fit.
I don’t think letting Tiller walk was a matter of trimming the fat, which has happened elsewhere among the roster. I just think it was never going to be the right fit, scheme-wise.
What does Tiller have to offer a team like the Chiefs?
Tiller is, at best, a stopgap starter in a team needing an inside presence, preferably at the right guard position. He’s OK at left guard, but he’s not quite as adept at run blocking on the left side of the line, which could hinder teams running to that side. I’m not sure if Tiller winds up being an everyday starter for the next two or three years, but he’s certainly capable of holding his own.
Teams looking for a solid, power-scheme guard could make some use of Tiller, especially in an immediate swing-guard role.

In this ESPN Insider piece, NFL Insider Mike25 Patrick Robinson Womens Jersey Sando proposes eight potential trades as NFL teams head to the combine in Indianapolis this week.
One of them brings a potential starting left tackle to the Los Angeles Chargers, as Sando proposes they acquire OT Cyrus Kouandjio and a 2017 seventh-rounder from the Buffalo Bills for a 2017 fourth-rounder.
The Chargers of course need help up front, and Kouandjio was decent in five starts at left tackle last season for Buffalo with Cordy Glenn out. Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn and offensive line coach Pat Meyer also are familiar with Kouandjio from their time in Buffalo.
Kouandjio did have hip surgery this offseason in January after falling at his home, putting in question his availability for offseason work.
Last year’s starting left tackle for the Chargers, King Jahleel Addae Youth Jersey Dunlap, turns 32 years old in September, carries a $5.75 million base salary in 2017 and has had trouble staying on the field the last two seasons. Dunlap also was arrested in Nashville 10 days ago on suspicion for violating a protection order.
My take: It’s a low-risk move to add talent up front, particularly with very few offensive line prospects in this year’s draft projected to come into the NFL right away and play left tackle. At 23 years old, Kouandjio also is a young, developing prospect who’s still growing as a player.
Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times writes that the Chargers have to go beyond adding young players from this year’s draft to solve issues such as injury prevention, holding onto fourth-quarter leads and just plain bad luck.
My take: He’s right. Lynn has to affect a change of culture to fix some of the things that have been plaguing this franchise for the last two years. But adding more talent will assist in that effort.
Matt Hoffman of NBC San Diego writes that legendary Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson was an honorary starter for the Daytona 500 over the weekend.
My take: That’s a cool honor bestowed on LT, who will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this summer.
Mark Whicker of the Orange County Register talks with Chargers general manager Tom Telesco, who had this to say about the Chargers moving forward: “It’s tough to know where we are. I don’t know. We have a good core. But we turned it over way too much. We did get more turnovers defensively, but we have to rush the passer better. Go through all the tough losses. There’s a different reason for each one.”
My take: With a league-high 35 turnovers last season, ball security will be a point of emphasis this offseason.

INDIANAPOLIS - The highlight ofSean Smith Authentic Jersey his NFL Scouting Combine week was meeting Brian Dawkins, LSU safety Jamal Adams said Sunday.
Dawkins has the title "football operations executive" with the Eagles, and he is part of the team's combine scouting group, as he was at the Senior Bowl.
Adams, considered likely to be taken in the top 10 or so in the draft's first round, was answering a question about getting help from former teammates, and after mentioning Eagles corner and former Tiger Jalen Mills, he said all such NFL advice is useful.
"For instance, (Saturday) I talked to a legend, Brian Dawkins . . . I've admired everything about him, and that was the highlight of my week. Just knowing that he already knew about me, saying how passionate I was and how I play the game the right way. That was huge, to hear that from a legend like him," Adams said.

INDIANAPOLIS – He entered ThursdayJared Crick Womens Jersey night as a question mark, a source of incredible uncertainty, the reason 100 percent of the pundits were picking the Indianapolis Colts to lose their first Thanksgiving home game in franchise history.
And by the time he left the locker room early Friday morning, this is what they were saying about Scott Tolzien:
“Played his (expletive) off,” said coach Chuck Pagano.
“Lights out,” added running back Robert Turbin.
“He did everything he possibly could,” offered tight end Erik Swoope. “On a short week, finding out on short notice. He’s a tough man and I respect everything he gave to this football team.”
• BOX SCORE: Steelers 28, Colts 7
For anyone who watched the Colts 28-7 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday night at Lucas Oil Stadium, the Scott Tolzien you knew at the beginning of the game wasn’t the Scott Tolzien you knew at the end of it. He has some mettle. He proved it. You saw it.
“He put us in situations to win the game,” said receiver T.Y. Hilton, who started the drops parade in the second quarter, bumbling a sure-bet touchdown.
Until Monday morning, Tolzien lived in utter Mark Ingram Womens Jersey obscurity – as most backup quarterbacks do. That’s when Tolzien woke up to a pair of missed calls. One was from Pagano. One was from Andrew Luck. He knew something was up.
Luck was in the concussion protocol. In other words: be ready.
Doyel: Colts lost, but they also found something
Four nights later he was starting his first NFL game three years to the day of his last, on national television, in primetime. No pressure.
It could’ve started better. Actually, it couldn’t have started much worse. On the first play from scrimmage, Tolzien fumbled the football (then, thankfully, he recovered). The Colts soon punted. Three plays in they’d lost 15 total yards.
“Had been a while since I played in a regular season game,” Tolzien said after the loss. “You’re gonna have to settle in.
So he did. He wasn’t Andrew Luck, and never was going to be, but Tolzien proved every bit a capable backup quarterback on a night the Colts’ shoddy defense and dropped passes buried them. The score won’t indicate, but he played well enough to win.
He moved the ball. He hit eight different receivers. Fired a touchdown. Stood tall in the pocked, absorbing hit after hit after hit, and bounced back up time and again. Proved something, if not to himself, to his teammates, to his coaches.
“One tough son of a gun,” Pagano called him. “Hung in there, hung in there, and hung in there and made some tough throws, and took some shots along the way.”
In other words, he learned what it’s like to be Andrew Luck every single Sunday.
In the third career start for the former Wisconsin Badger, Tolzien led the offense on three drives of 10 plays or more, and four that reached Pittsburgh territory. None produced points. The problem was finishing. The Colts failed to convert a pair of fourth-and-goal situations from the 1 that could’ve turned the tenor of the game.
Both drives included scrambles from Tolzien that ended a yard short. He was kicking himself after the game.
“That’s frustrating, I’ll be honest,” he said. “I did trip (on the second drive). It’s a one-on-one situation, and when the goal line is right in front of you, you gotta find a way to put it in. Frustrating as heck.”
Reaction: Roethlisberger, Brown beat Colts again
Even then, the quarterback wasn’t the problem. The drops – yeah, we’re talking to you, T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief and Phillip Dorsett – were.
The most damaging: A 19-play drive that lasted 11:22, eating up most of the third quarter, and ended with a Tolzien-to-Dorsett pass that was dropped in the end zone. A touchdown there would’ve cut the Steelers’ to seven with a full quarter to go, and given Indianapolis life, or hope, or something in the middle.
Instead, the Colts left empty-handed.
It was the story of their night.
Don’t question Tolzien’s guts, either. The second play of the fourth quarter embodied it. Tolzien escaped from the pocket on a third-and-goal from the Steelers’ 2-yard-line. He was stuffed by safety Mike Mitchell. Tolzien's helmet flew off but the football didn’t. He popped right back up, ready for another fourth-and-goal.
Tolzien finished 22-for-36 for 205 yards, one touchdown and two late, inconsequential interceptions. He was sacked three times and hurried relentlessly.
What the Colts need, more than anything, is No. 12 back under center. Andrew Luck has 10 days to pass the concussion protocol before the Colts face the Jets on Monday night football on Dec. 5. It’ll be the first of a five-game stretch in December that will decide the fate of their season. Currently, at 5-6, they trail the Houston Texans (6-4) by two games in the AFC South.
But for one night, even in a losing effort, the backup proved capable. Like Matt Hasselbeck last season, if The Franchise goes down, the Colts know they don’t have to panic. Moving forward, if nothing else, having Tolzien available will help them sleep better.
That being said, Luck’s return can’t come soon enough. The final stretch awaits.
“We all hope Andrew’s back,” Tolzien said. “He’s the leader of our team, and with good reason.”

It took nearly three seasons, but the 49ers believe they found the solution for Cornellius "Tank" Carradine to become a productive NFL player.
Specifically, the defensive lineman was Jerry Rice Womens Jersey never a good fit for the 49ers’ base 3-4 defense. But the 49ers think this season their second-round draft pick of 2013 will be more productive as a situational player when the 49ers employ a four-man line.
“We identified it last year,” 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said last week at the NFL owners meetings in Boca Raton, Florida. “Schematically, he came from a system (at Florida State) that was very attack-oriented into a system that has a lot more reads to it – a lot more technique involved.
“We play more of a read-and-react front in our base package. And in nickel you get into attacking a little bit more. In an effort to make him a read-and-react player, (he) added a bunch of weight, probably got him into a situation that didn’t take advantage of what he did well.”
Carradine has said he is most comfortable when he weighs approximately 265 pounds. While he was rehabbing from a torn ACL and getting ready to enter the draft, Carradine’s weight dropped to a low of 251 before rising to 276 for the NFL Scouting Combine.
In order to fit as a 3-4 lineman, Carradine put on weight. The 49ers listed him last year at 295 pounds -- a size that is more conducive to Max Unger Kids Jersey playing on a three-man defensive line.
But, finally, last season the 49ers decided he should drop weight and become more of a pass-rush specialist when the 49ers go to their nickel package, which features four down linemen. The idea was never to move Carradine to outside linebacker. But 49ers outside linebackers shift to defensive ends in the nickel package.
“Toward the middle of last year, we switched that put him more in the nickel type role and you saw him start to progress as the season went on,” Baalke said. “So I think you can expect to see him lighter, playing more in the four-man fronts than the three-man fronts and being a strong contributor in that role.”
Carradine has the flexibility to rush the passer from the outside or inside spots along the 49ers’ four-game line in nickel situations, Baalke said.
Carradine did not see any action as a rookie in 2013. The 49ers briefly brought him up to the 53-man roster. He spent six weeks on the active roster before the 49ers opted to place him on injured reserve in order to focus on rehabbing the knee.
The past two seasons, Carradine appeared in 23 games and recorded four sacks.
The 49ers did not add a pass rusher in the first three weeks of free agency, but figure to eye players in the draft who can apply heat on opposing quarterbacks. The team hopes finding a better fit for Carradine, who recorded 16.5 sacks in 24 games at Florida State.
“He’s proven to be more effective in an attack-and-react system, more than a read-and-react system,” Baalke said.
